Redpath Museum Sketchcrawl
Last weekend was the monthly Sunday Sketchcrawl for Urban Sketchers Montreal. We had 12-15 people out at the Redpath Museum for a day of sketching the curiosities within.
Only the hardiest (or craziest) Montreal sketchers were out at 10am in -8c. There’s Helmut, Shari and Jennifer sketching from the steps of the Redpath. We lasted about 45 minutes before fleeing for the Tim Hortons. (Timmy’s is a Canadian landmark – our local Dunkin’ Donuts).
Once warmed up we spent the afternoon in the museum. I’m always attracted to the stuffed animals. Charmingly morbid. I saved a lot of skulls for a future trip. And a suit of Samurai armor – as we’re planning to go to a big Japanese armor show later in the year. But next outing (January) we’re going to the art gallery. I think outdoor sketching in Montreal is officially over for the season.
